Students' Street also starts in the Old Town and leads to the new districts with nine-storey apartment houses.
This three-storey apartment house at 4 Students Street has a Stalin era inscription 5 B 4, which means 5 in 4, that is,
"We will fulfill the five-year plan in four years!
It was a very popular Communist slogan of the first Stalin era five-year plans.
Like no other apartment house in Rubizhne, this one has a unique design. The room height is 2.85 meters, which is a typical Stalin era room height. Those apartments are called Stalinka now and are considered to be very valuable in the commodity market owing to their height.
The apartment house has only eighteen apartments, among them many four-room apartments designed for leading industrial specialists who were among the first lucky residents who moved into this apartment house in the thirties.
